The Strength Card
I did a guided meditation a couple of days ago and was told to pay attention to the Tarot card "Strength" This is the Shadowscapes Tarot.
The card speaks of perseverance, having confidence and unshakable resolve. There are many kinds of strength; strength is adaptive and passionate but not uncontrolled.
This card also attaches the swan and cats to the central figures. The swan is a Celtic symbol of movement and success or glory. Cats have been seen in many cultures as symbols of freedom and creativity, in this context they might also be a distraction from the main goal.
As an outcome card Strength tells us to keep moving toward the goal and attain success. As an advice card Strength tell us not to let emotions run unchecked and distract us.
Strength can also be about courage and a reminder that courage is not the absence of fear, but rather taking action in the face of fear.
